If you "diff -r jdk7/jdk/src/share/classes/sun/tools/jar
bsd-port/jdk/src/share/classes/sun/tools/jar" you'll see that
the setting of the cwd string (and using it to normalize the path)
is the only difference between mainline and bsd-port.

In short, it's bsd-port specific, and comparably recent. It came in with
mid-January (a simple oversight when merging the changes from mainline
I'd guess). If you try to build the bsd-port openjdk with itself you'll
trip the bug (that's how I found it).
